Great summer sport on Deeside

It was a better week for anglers fishing the Aberdeenshire Dee last week with FishDee beats reporting 221 salmon and 30 sea trout, writes Dee Fisheries Development Officer, Ken Reid. And although reports in the current week suggest the river is now down to its bare summer bones, it is worth dwelling on the superlative summer sport that greets those fly-fishermen, and women, who are in the right place at the right time. Fish sprinting like Usain Bolt? Dancing nuns on roller blades? All will be explained.. ... Full story

Hayes expands Norwegian salmon-fishing portfolio for 2013

Ever since he filmed a series of his fishing exploits for the Discovery channel and despite a fishless week after salmon, ended up catching a little more than he'd bargained for (he was to marry the daughter of the family that owned the fishings!), fishing celebrity Matt Hayes has developed a big love affair for Norway's River Gaula.

Varzina trout camp comes good

Every self-respecting famous Kola Peninsula salmon river these days has to boast its own trout fishing camp in the upper reaches and the North Kola's Varzina river is no exception.

But Russia's trophy salmon river, the Yokanga, which had a good July this year, is set for the late show as the season rolls to a high summer climax. ... Full story

Iceland: the other side of the coin

It is now well documented how the north Atlantic jetstream has disturbed the UK's summer weather to an even greater extent than usual but the situation for those who head to Iceland in search of its summer harvest of silver Atlantic salmon has presented the opposite to flash flooding in England's home counties. There, an extended drought has put the dampeners on sport and a recent report from fieldsports agent Roxtons shows catches around 30 per cent down on west and north coast rivers. ... Full story
